    A rotary burr is a rotating bit that quickly removes material from metal. They make quick work of cutting out or enlarging holes. The right burr set will depend on the materials you want to shape. Tungsten carbide rotary burrs are great for the most common types of metal such as aluminum, steel, and stainless steel. They last for several uses, making for a great, long lasting kit. High Strength Steel, or HSS, sets are more budget friendly if you need to save some money, but are limited to softer metals like aluminum. For professional results, go with the tungsten carbide when you are only looking for one set to last.
